I’ll have a more official listing up soon, but I wanted to share the news as soon as it was official. Thanks to the wonderful folks over at CirqueLouis, I’ll be spending the weekend of November 5th in Louisville teaching my Variety Performance Clinic!

Facebook event page:


Why do some acts work where others stumble?

Performance Skills! That nearly invisible “can only tell if it isn’t there” magic that can elevate an idea into a memorable, show-stopping act.

Above and beyond your raw skill, these are the tools you need as a performer to effectively communicate your stories and passions to an audience.

In this two-day “intensive but not intense” workshop, Russ Sharek will deconstruct and demystify these critical concepts, along with supporting material from the worlds of clown, mime, improv, sketch comedy, classic theater, and circus.

Variety entertainers only get a few minutes on stage. Come learn how to make every second count.
